    As usual, West on Centre was very welcoming with a lovely ambiance. Service was excellent and the food was very good. We arrived for brunch when they opened and it was very quiet. There were several events later in the morning, however, so it got pretty lively.

    Waitress was lovely and attentive (I wish I could remember her name!). Food was great- I had steak tips, my friend had butternut squash ravioli). Prices were more than reasonable! West on Centre is always great!

    I have always had a good experience at West on Centre but brunch yesterday was not good. When we arrived there were a few tables where people were eating. After waiting 10 minutes at our table I had to go up to the receptionist to find out why we were not being attended to. After 5 more minutes a server finally came to our table. The table next to us had wait longer for their server to take their order. If the server is poor next time, that will be our last visit. By the way, the food was very good.

    This place is consistently good, providing great food and great service. Our server was attentive and friendly. Our food came out of the kitchen quickly and was well prepared. One of the salads did not include the grilled chicken that was ordered. The server politely apologized and brought it out a few minutes later.

    It was nice and quiet when I arrived, but several large parties showed up shortly there after! Lol. I got the West on Centre burger, which is one of their flagship dishes. I highly recommend it, as well as the calamari starter.

    Great for lunch or drinks! This was my first time visiting this restaurant and it was on the recommendation of my son who used to live in “Rozzi”. It was close to where I needed to be. Our server, Emily C was fantastic and our Tuscan Chicken Sandwiches were delicious! I was not happy about being charged $3.00 for SODA WATER. It’s water with carbonation. We ate in the bar area which had a nice fire lit in the fireplace. Really nice as the day was cold and raw. The music level was definitely a bit loud for a moderate lunch crowd. I will definitely eat here again in three months when I’m back in the area for another appointment the nearby hospital which is only five minutes away.

    Our Valentines Day dinner at West on Centre was wonderful! Our server Chris was attentive and efficient. The food was great. We shared the fried Artichoke hearts appetizer with the lemon and caper remoulade- fabulous! It should be a regular menu item. We want to have it again.- soon. We both had the Filet of Sole stuffed with crabmeat with the lobster sauce. Perfection, and it came with lobster pieces that were cooked perfectly. Such a treat. The Sole was delicious and full of crabmeat. The sauce was yummy. We can’t wait to go back. This wonderful neighborhood place just gets better and better!

    The four of us were squeezed into a small table right on the edge of a function, and the noise level was high (had requested a quiet table with the reservation). The host was somewhat sarcastic when I asked for a better table (didn't get it). Prices expensive for quality of the food and the drinks (for example, Bloody Mary was watered down and had no celery or olive).

    Been coming here for years, it’s a solid cornerstone in our brunch rotation. Service was spectacular, our waitress was hilarious and had such a great vibe. Drinks were great, and the food delicious! We missed the scallions that used to come with the home fries and my steak was definitely med-well rather than med-rare but was still very tender, juicy and flavorful so I didn’t mention it, same with my friends burger, but they would’ve been even better had it been cooked properly. A wonderful time none-the-less!

    Out to dinner with a friend. Dinner and salad was delicious. I got the scallops, she got the cod. We both really enjoyed. Waiter was great but forgot about us at end. We had to ask for more water. Food is always good here. Neither one of us had a cocktail. We split a salad and both got an entree. Bill was $74.00
